yes and no, the replacement name is shown also as name if you enter the 
POI (and may be also saved if you save the POI as Waypoint. I have not 
tested it.)( In addtion to it during opening a single POI by pressing 
ENTER this name will also be displayed for some seconds in the status 
bar. Thats almosts(for some types not) the case even the POI has already 
a name)

I have had a look into a map (openmtbmap de), and as far as i can see, 
only non-standard poi-types creates these multiple "other" categories. 
With non-standard i don't mean these extended-type(or 3-Byte types). 
Non-standard means types which are e.g. not part of the standard-typeset 
of GPSmapedit or cgpsmapper.

e.g for shopping it is:

0x2E01    Department Store
0x2E02    Grocery
0x2E03    General Merchandiser
0x2E04    Shopping Center
0x2E05    Pharmacy
0x2E06    Convenience
0x2E07    Apparel
0x2E08    House and Garden
0x2E09    Home Furnishing
0x2E0a    Special Retail
0x2E0b    Computer/Software

Types like 0x2e1f creates one "other" entry in the categories submenu. 
The replacement text "sporting goods" from the type-file will only be 
shown for seconds in the status bar if you press enter for opening the POI.

I have to mention, that i only have a 60csx to look at it so it may be 
different on other gps like oregon etc.
